I popped my AG cherry with this recipe. I brewed a 2.5 gallon batch and if I like it I'll up it to a 5 gallon partial mash. I dont have the equipment do to a 5 gallon full boil. I also used my barley crusher for the first time with this.

I'm brewing this as I type, about halfway through the boil, and I gotta say it looks and smells great already. At this point it doesn't mean much but I'm already looking forward to that first pint.

When do yo plan to drink it. If you force carb I recommend from 14 days is fine.

Not sure whether I'm bottling or kegging this one yet. It depends on if I the parts for my version of sonvolt's beer engine get here in time. I'd like to put it on CO2 but my fittings are US spec and don't match up with what is used in Japan.

Orfy you can drink this young? This being my first AG I am anxious to see how different the taste is.

I was into mine, kegged and carbed by day 14. It did seem to open up after 3 - 4 weeks though. Very, very good. Mashed at 158*F and came in at 2.9% ABV.

A balanced mild is a beer to be drank young.
2 weeks should taste good. 4 may taste better
I'd want to kill the keg within 6 - 8 weeks

A good thing to do is start taking half a glass daily or every other day after carbonation.
I've started drinking this stuff from day 8. It's amazing to see it come together over the next week or so. I was much happier with it on day 12 to day 8.

It's a good way to educate your taste buds on green beer and how it develops.

Just poured the first pint of this tonight. One week of priming and all is well. Very tasty and easy drinking! Thanks for the recipe, Orfy!

I drew my first hydrometer sample last night, and it was delicious - even my wife agreed. It was also not at all what I expected (I had never had a mild before). This was my first time working with several ingredients though, especially the Fuggles hops.

What surprised me was a really strong fruity aroma and taste, even though I fermented the beer quite cool (at 67 degrees using Safale-04, which I unintentionally subbed for the Nottingham). My first reaction was "did I use Cascade in this beer?", although it was a bit more along the lines of cantaloupe than grapefruit - a bit floral, as well. My wife, who is quite uneducated in beer tasting, also noted that it struck her as fruity.

So what am I tasting/smelling? Is is the Fuggles, is it the yeast, and more importantly, does the original recipe have a similar flavor and aroma profile?

I just popped open my first bottle after 2 weeks waiting for it to carb. Its been almost a month since I made this and all I can say is this is my best tasting batch I have made so far. I think this beer is real forgiving as far as mash temps. Since this was my first AG I mashed high and had an FG of .015 and it still tastes good. What does everyone else think.

Thanks Orfy definately make again.

EDIT 4-30
I finished off my case and this is my best tasting brew so far
